Re: Fred 's microdisc clone?

Hi Chema, If I'm not mistaken, Fred sold his board + drive on Ebay, bought one years ago. I'm not sure he still does though. I wasn't even aware it had a specific hardware design, I just thought he managed to get a compact board. There has been so many hardware projects in the past few years that I'...

Re: Le Diamant de l'Ile Maudite

Interesting. The cover looks a bit different in colour (on the right)- or is it faded? Yes, I don't know if it's because the inlay is getting old, or if it was initially printed in more greenish shades. Also, the box on the right is a bit smaller than the one on the left (and some other details dif...

Re: Le Diamant de l'Ile Maudite

Never noticed, also interesting that the address of Loriciels changed :) Yes, but this is more common ;) There's also a version with the "old" address in Paris, and the title corrected. According to its author, about 12000 copies were sold back then. No idea of how many production batches this can ...

Re: Hardware boxes scans

I will try and scan some, but no deadline promises.
And I don't think I have a clean Oric-1 box - too bad I cut mine into pieces in the 80s :'(

Hardware boxes scans

I was wondering, are there high resolution (let's say 300DPI at least) scans of original hardware boxes somewhere?
Especially Oric-1, Atmos? (and Telestrat, and Microdisc, printers, Jasmin drives, etc. etc.)

Re: Krillys - real hardware and tape!

Funny, you're using an Oric-1 and the final Hires screen isn't affected by the CLOAD statut line (clearly visible on the 1st fully red hires screen).

And also I'm still looking for someone to help with the english traduction of the game (which english name is going to be Oric 3D aMaze).

If someone feels like translating ...
If there's no hurry and not too much text, I can give it a try
